fire near the hollywood sign and panic spreads as fast as to the flames. >> that could be a really big disaster. >> wow! >> but, of course, it is hollywood. how some folks turned an emergency into a photo on. cops try to nail whoever is stealing american flags from a cemete cemetery. eventually they caught the thief. rescue at sea. operation to save a baby whale in a net. >> not like she will sit there like your puppy and let you cut
it off. >> he loves han"hannah montana" body spray because it keeps it just enough. >> aren't you afraid he won't give you something? >> he can't give me something i don't already have and got rid of. >> this is an rtm exclusive. hollywood is burning and it's not because of a film. check out this brush fire shot by josh weber. >> there is a bush fire, son. >> take a look where this fire is. >> wow. >> there's the hollywood sign there, folks. >> it's half a mile away. >> it's a popular spot for people to look at the hollywood sign and take pictures. yes, there are a lot of very expensive homes nearby. >> this could be tragic. >> josh spends a lot of time checking out this fire and soon notices it's not just this little patch of fire here. >> this thing down here is on
fire, too. >> wow! >> this thing is all going to go up in flames pretty soon. real soon. look at that. it's already roasting, son. >> people did more than just call the fire department. this one guy, he steps in. >> don't go down. you won't be able to stop it! >> he's throwing dirt on the fire. that could be a really big disaster if that gets out of control. >> could be. good thing it didn't get out of control. about 75 firefighters put this brush fire out in about a half hour. >> maybe somebody was smoking a cigarette or something. >> yeah. of course, it's still under investigation. a couple witnesses are claiming they saw somebody pitch a cigarette. back in 2007, there was another brush fire in the same neighborhood started by two teenagers and the proximity to highway 101. that gets shut down or the fire jumps the highway. it's mayhem. >> see that?
he just dropped the water? of course, it is hollywood and what would it be without the quick photo-op. >> quick, man, because this whole side of the hill is going to go up. >> oh, no. 92 did he have to make that post? >> why that one? >> this is one of those videos that's really hard to watch because it involves a whale trapped out at sea. fortunately, this one does have a happy ending because the sea rescue boating and fishery patrol found the whale and proceeded to try to cut the net. it is tangled in. they try to keep sharks off beaches in australia. but when they start migration, they get caught in these nets. >> just because you call it a shark net. >> they are to protect humans, but humans know if they get in
they risk getting attacked. >> am i noticing the whale cut up pretty bad from the net? >> the net was around his head and left pectoral fin. when they tried to free her, said she suffered superficial cuts but not enough to keep her from surviving. >> do they know the age of this? >> they said it was a baby whale. >> imagine the difficulty of trying to cut this off the whale. she's not going to sit there like your puppy to let you cut it off. >> no. the very first time they approach her to cut the net, she takes a dive. eventually they were able to get it off the whale. >> think of the turtles and everything else could get caught in that. that's the nature of a net. it catches what it catches. >> the good thing is, she can continue her journey. >> i want you guys to be the judge on a piece of video released back in june of 2011. this is in oklahoma.
this is police arresting brian because of public intoxication, a charge he later pled guilty to. >> take him straight back to the jail. >> in this video, we're seeing a lapel camera from one of the officers. he is refusing to stand up in his handcuffs. >> are you ready to walk? get up and walk. >> the officer you hear, that's owasso police lieutenant, mike dent. they started going back to another area of the jail. watch what happens next. >> don't try to brutalize me. are you a terrorist? arabic? what? what? >> oh! >> you see there, three elbows right to the face. lieutenant detlin was fired because of excessive force in november of 2011. in march of this year, an arbitrator reinstated him.
he has his job back with a written warning. >> if he had done that to the police, he'd be looking at an assault on the officer charge. what's thedifference? the guy did not loo like or anything for the officer. >> i don't say what he was doing was justified. to me, it didn't look that severe. >> the guy was already handcuffed. i think that was excessive force. he may have been running his mouth. but that in my opinion, did not warrant an elbow to the face. >> i agree. i don't think the should lose his job indefinitely for that. do you think this officer should have been reinstated? let us know on facebook. this happened in anaheim, where the orange county sheriff's office bomb squad exploded six grenades and other suspicious items. >> weird. >> they put in their mobile blast chamber. >> like rdd 2.
>> they were called out to assist the orange county bomb squad. approximately 8:00 this morning they noticed what appeared to be a backpack with explosive devices in and around the backpack. >> that brings the question, what the heck was a grenade doing in a backpack in anaheim. >> they're still trying to determine that. at this point they say they don't have any suspects. >> it appears the person or persons that left this explosive item at this location had some type of knowledge in explosive devices. we safely detonated six live hand grenades, a fair amount of plastic powder, fuses, other devices. no one got hurt other than maybe an eardrum from the blast. other than that, everything went very smooth. >> the best part is we're seeing this video and not video of those grenades going off somewhere else. >> who had that stuff?
blasting caps, six grenades in a backpack? >> scary. >> i'm glad they found it and detonated it and nobody was hurt. >> good job, bomb squad. how far will you go for your favorite treat? one snack maker put it to the test. >> did they put crack in these cookies? are they really that good? >> we have a two-fer for you, first, a watermelon smash to the head and video that will remind
it's actually kind of creepy. of all the things to steal, who would take stuff from a graveyard? that's going on in hudson, new york, at the cedar park cemetery. what was being stolen, 35 american flags on the grave of civil war veterans. >> why? >> weird. right? the police looked at the hudson police department chief. >> typically, i think the
assumption is juveniles, kids partying might be responsible for this type of incident. >> they replaced the flags stolen. the next night, 17 more american flags were stolen from the same graveyard. they ramped up their security in hudson, new york and installed little mounted cameras in the cemetery to see what was going down, who was behind this. eventually, they caught the crooks. >> if it was a raccoon, i will tell you i told you so. >> not a raccoon, a wood chuck. they looked back at their cameras and find this wood chuck, believed to be the thief. you see in that picture, he's like chewing up the american flag. >> believe the police chief owes every teenager an apology. >> right. >> there might be a female who's having babies and needs bedding. >> either that or a patriotic groundhog. we reached out to the hudson police department to see if we could get the video.
they said they're not releasing it at this time because the wood chuck requested an attorney. i'm ser they saious they said t us. i did not make that up. there has been talk about longer sticks to keep the wood chucks away. how far will you go for your favorite treat. this is in australia and this is a challenge created by fantastic delights, a savory rice treat they like a lot over there. they put a kiosk in the middle of this busy area and said, if you push the button 100 times, you'll get a free boston delight. >> easy enough. >> that lady does it. no big deal. >> yeah! >> i've seen that in a casino a million times. >> goes up to 200 and 500 and people sit there and push away. >> people will do a lot of stuff
for something for free. at her times? challenge. 5,000. >> get out of here. >> 5,000 times. >> your hand has to hurt after that. >> look at the guy over her shoulder about to creep on her free box of treats. >> people will push the button thousands of times. let's change it up a little bit. so now they have to do stuff. >> bow to the almighty one. >> and she did. >> they have to monitor this to make sure they're doing this. >> do they put crack in these cookies? are they that good? >> they have to be that good. >> somebody had to do disco dancing. she had moves. >> that kid can dance. >> what do you think our equivalent is?
>> funions, i'd do it in a minute. >> a big bag of doritos. get down with that. >> this guy has been invaded by some stinging houseguests. >> how about houseguests in the form of 50,000 bees. >> see how they save the bees next time "right this minute." >> this guy uses "hannah montana" body spray to repel raccoon raccoons. we're talking to the kuhn lovco himself. >> how do you spray? >> it's not how you dd
